Awful Squad took PUBG to the dark ages

Battlegrounds minus guns is still fun

Patrick Gill (he/him) has been making serious and unserious videos for Polygon since 2016. He also co-hosts & produces Polygon’s weekly livestreams on Twitch.

Between the time when the oceans drank Pochinki, and the rise of the sons of Griffin, there was an age undreamed of. And unto this world came Awful Squad — destined to wear the jeweled crowns of Erangel upon their troubled brows. It is I, their chronicler, who alone can tell thee of their saga. Let me tell you of the days of high adventure!

This week’s Awful Squad attendees include:

  • Griffin McElroy
  • Russ Frushtick
  • Brian Gilbert
  • Simone de Rochefort
  • Clayton Ashley
  • Travis McElroy

No idea what Awful Squad is? Play catch-up with the series, as a bunch of Polygon staffers and friends team up for some truly terrible matches of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
